Inappropriate on so many levels

This gift was given to a one-year-old boy for his birthday. It is clearly marked on the box that this is meant for ages 3+. What could have happened: Once his parents opened the box for him and gave him the blocks, he proceeded to chew the splintery pieces before hurling them through every window of the house. What actually happened: His smart parents locked up the weapons deep in the closet for when he is older, and avoided the "thoughtful" relatives for a long time. Now, getting to these "thoughtful" relatives, another point needs to be made here. This gift was not the result of one family, but FOUR families. Yes, FOUR extremely generous families chipped in about 3 cents each and bought these weapons for their one-year-old relative. What gems!

Wow, what a great toy. For the wood stove this Winter that is.

To be fair those blocks are $46 on Amazon. So the four families chipped in around $6.50 each. BUT that's still pretty darn cheap of them. And ridiculous for a 1 year old who puts everything in their mouth (at least mine did)

So bright and colorful for the one year one's visual stimulation!
